"I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes." NIV
"I am thy servant; give me understanding that I may know thy testimonies." KJV
It would be a disastrous thing to be hired for a new job, but not be given any understandable directions for how to do the job. This is somewhat like our place as servants of God. We cannot do His will without Him supplying us with understanding, insight, and awareness of His will for our lives. If we pray daily for this understanding, he will give it to us.
Heavenly Father, we thank You that You hear us when we pray and bring our petitions before You. We ask for understanding, insight, and awareness of Your will so that we can bring glory to You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
